US Invades Georgia, Accidentally Bombs Carter Center
Not in my wildest Cold Warrior dreams back in ’84 did I ever think we’d have units speckled about the vast spaces of Soviet Central Asia. And now we might be sending up to 200 soldiers to help out in post-Soviet Georgia in the Caucasus, too.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Georgia President (and former Soviet foreign minister) Eduard Sheverdnaze has asked for US assistance in battling al Qaeda, and President Bush has agreed. However, no formal agreement has been worked out.
Also, no word yet on exactly how fast Stalin is spinning in his grave.
